actualy it wasnt a fast trip at all, left at 5 in the morning and didnt get back till 7 at night. mainly because we had to do some on-the-spot mechanic work cause the brakes went out. just had to rig something up for the moment. only 1 work break is working so whenever i step on the break hard, it pulls to one side. but its ok cause it went out again(it wasnt that great of a break job we did. haha.) and now i have no breaks Smile been driving it all day.

its within driving distance, but its a long ass drive. the beaver oklahoma dunes are closer. iv been there before and its a pretty nice place. according to google maps, little sahara is 274 miles away, while the beaver dunes are 192. im planning on going down there as soon as i get some sand tires. the tires i have now are street tires and compleatly suck in the snow, so i can only imagine what they would do in the sand. ill have some good pics up in a couple of days, gotta get the breaks working again before i drive it too much(iv already driven about 5 times today with no brakes. lol)

How did you stop? Are the floors gone so you stop Flintstones style?

I'm just over 300 to Little Sahara. I think the Beaver dunes are a little further for me.

actualy the brake(only the rear driver side break worked, had to tear it down and stick a bolt in it for it to work) worked on the drive, but it apparently decided to go out that night. im going to head over to mosers garage and see if they have any on hand, if not they can always order them along with a few other parts. and yeah this summer we might have to meet up at little sahara. bring some buddys and show me how to drive on the sand. haha. never driven a car on the sand before, just atv's.
